LSU's Faulk involved in fight after Texas A&M loss

As the two sides were shaking hands after A&M's 74-72 victory, LSU Director of Player Development and former New England Patriot Kevin Faulk, got into a fist-fight with a man who appeared to be an A&M assistant coach.

With seven overtimes, Texas A&M-LSU tied the record for longest game in FBS history with Arkansas-Ole Miss in 2001, Arkansas-Kentucky in 2003, North Texas-FIU in 2006 and Buffalo-Western Michigan previous year.

According to The Advocate, LSU analyst Steve Kragthorpe was punched on the field following the Tiger's seven-overtime loss to Texas A&M.

Late Saturday night, LSU radio sideline reporter Gordy Rush said on WDGL-FM that the man wearing the red shirt in the photo is the man who punched Kragthorpe. "I was like, 'Damn, he got me right in my pacemaker.' Then it started fluttering like he jostled it". It's now unknown whether the man who fought Faulk is an Aggies assistant, a team staffer or simply a fan who found his way onto the field.


"I didn't appreciate getting punched in my pacemaker", Kragthorpe said.

No. 22 Texas A&M beat No. 7 LSU 74-72 (!) in seven overtimes (!) in one of the craziest college football games you'll ever see. I have no idea who the guy is.

It turns out the puncher is very close to Jimbo Fisher as he has since been identified as Cole Fisher, the nephew of Texas A&M coach. It took a 50-yard field goal to grab a 34-31 lead at that point, but Texas A&M could only make a field goal of their own.

Fisher claimed no knowledge of the incident when asked after the game.
